Local Photographer displays work in Gallery 708
Oct. 28, 2015 – Salina Public Library will host a reception for photographer Danton McDiffett during First Thursday Art Rush from 5-7 p.m. Nov. 5. McDiffett’s exhibit, “Kansas: Understated Beauty,” is on display in Gallery 708 through Dec. 18.
McDiffett’s exhibit focuses on the scenic beauty of Kansas. All of the photos were taken in and around North-Central Kansas. McDiffett included many sunrises and sunsets shot while commuting from his teaching jobs in Bennington and Tescott.
“Kansas often begins and ends the day with glorious displays of riotous reds, outrageous oranges and yellows, and perfect pinks,” McDiffett said. “Stopping along the county roads offers an appreciative viewer scenery equal to that found in any other state when Kansas chooses to display her ostentatious side.”
The library displays work by local artist throughout the year in Gallery 708, located in the south entryway. Applications are being accepted for 2016. The exhibition policy and application can be found at www.salinapubliclibrary.org under Programs & Services.
